The Race to the Courthouse, held on Saturday, March 24th, was a great success. Bay Area Legal Services, aka Team BALS, was well represented by legal and support staff, staff family members, and board members. Several team members won awards in their age categories. Others were just glad that they finished!
Congratulations to Board Member Rosemary Armstrong for winning the Proven Producer Award, which is given to the person who pledged and completed the most pro bono hours since the 2011 5K. Team BALS won the prize for “Most Pro Bono Hours Raised.”
In addition to participating in the race, BALS staff also volunteered before, during, and after the race to ensure that the event “ran” smoothly. The event was a great show of support for BALS, its pro bono program, and the provision of pro bono services in the community.
